wherever you think you may have an ant issue.
TOOTHPASTE AS ALL PURPOSE CLEANER
Save money by using toothpaste to clean sink fixtures and

ALKA SELTZER AS FISHING BAIT
Strangely enough, if you drop a few alka seltzer tablets into
the water around your fishing hole it may help you score the big one.
TEA BAGS AS WART REMOVER
The tannic acid inside of tea leaves can work to eradicate warts
by placing warmed, wet tea bags on the wart for about 15 minutes,
up to three times per day.
WD-40 AS CRAYON ERASER
If you have artistic kids that like to decorate your walls,
you don’t have to spend a lot of money on wall cleaner.
WD-40 does the trick for much cheaper. Just be sure to wipe
down the surface with a soapy rag if you want to get the oil off
the wall afterward.
BANANAS AS SILVERWARE SHINERS
Just rub the inside of the banana peel over whatever your
silverware and watch the magic happen.
HONEY AS GERM KILLER
Some varieties of honey can be used as a very effective
antibacterial agent and will also reduce scarring on wounds.
ASPIRIN AS ITCH RELIEVER
